The Coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the vulnerability of global supply chains to geographic concentration risk. Concentration risk occurs when a large number of suppliers within a given supply chain are located in a single geographic region, making the businesses that depend on them unusually vulnerable to disruption within that region.

Interos’ latest research examines other locations in the world where concentration risk could create a large scale disruption in the face of a natural disaster – specifically Penang, Malaysia, a key player in the global semiconductor supply chain.
